How to watch the UFC 288 live stream
UFC 288 is a PPV event on ESPN+. That means you’ll have to have an ESPN+ subscription and you’ll need to buy the PPV separately. The PPV costs $80, and there’s no way of getting around that. There are, however, a few options for how to subscribe to ESPN+, some that save you a significant amount of money. The first option, a regular subscription, costs $10 per month or $100 for a full year. There is no ESPN+ free trial, so buying a single month and the PPV for $90 altogether is the cheapest way to watch UFC 288.
Alternatively, as part of a limited-time UFC 288 deal, you can buy the PPV and an ESPN+ yearly subscription for only $125. That basically brings the price of a yearly ESPN+ subscription down to $45 from $100 (or brings the PPV price from $80 to $25, if you look at it that way). While this isn’t the cheapest way to watch UFC 288, it will save you a ton of money if you intend to buy any UFC PPV event within the next year.
